I really don't think they are trying to get anything shut down. Just a wee bit misleaded
That is a load of crock mate. Maybe not complaining to you personally, but I know personally that clown has filed tons of complaints about any poster who posted anything he couldn't stomach. I deleted his PM that said so, but he admitted as much.
WTF is up with the forum. Barrus an admin gets a ban? Seriously, I provided an option months back for the influx of trolls that came here after the Tour. Ban them all permanently. An early Xmas present. I honestly feel sorry for the mods with the number of complaints I can imagine they get. There are too many pu$$ies in this place. Too many bleeding heart lightweight cry babies. At least back in the day Arbiter was funny.
There are a select minority on this forum who believe the rules should bend for their interests and believe the Clinic's core purpose and function should be changed. They're going to be banned when a Sky rider pops positive and that is going to happen some time. Better to give them the shaft now and save the forum the misery of hundreds of pages of drivel and deflection. This has happened before...anyone remember Polish?
thehog trolling? Does thehog file complaints and spam you ferryman? How about the mods just tell the sooks to STFU and grow a sack and fill it with some nads? It'd help everyone. Half the derailments are from Brits upset a British race team is being questioned or talked about. That says enough. The same broken jingoism for hundreds of posts...deflect, deflect, twiddle thumbs, use your fingers, deflect deflect and then finally go into attacking the character rather than the issue at hand. If these people don't like the posts there are plenty of other forums out there. Maybe they can go join Dimspace and sit round and sing Kumbaya and talking about the awesomeness of Team Sky? Maybe a Christmas get together is on the cards? After all, they all live in the UK. thehog actually talks about the thread...aka he talks about Sky. Go and look at the forum guidelines about what constitutes trolling. Those filing the complaints and spamming you are the trolls. Heaven help those people if they did this on YouTube or Facebook. It'd be a massacre. Nobody holds your hand on there.
So has Rogers left yet? Anyone know? Heard talk. Saxo or Sky? Don't send him to Bjarne...he'll be crap again. Contador doesn't need a turn coat who can't be employed any longer credibly because of some idiotic clap trap Brailsford made riders sign. Of all the riders on Sky I want to see get popped, he's pretty much at the top of my list. Maybe this Aussie cycling review can unearth something.
